A More Confident Tow

The 2019 Ram 1500 and the Ford F-150 boast the ability to haul a large camping trailer or recreational boat. You'll be happy to have systems, such as the Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path and Automatic Trailer Detection, to simplify that kind of towing. It warns when vehicles are traveling in your blind zone, accounting for the length of your trailer and letting you know when it's safe to change lanes on the fast-paced highway.

The Ram 1500 increases the towing confidence with an available Active Level™ Four Corner Air Suspension system. This will automatically lower your stance on the highway for improved aerodynamics and efficiency. In addition, it comes with auto-load leveling to make it easier to hook up your trailer and hit the road. This is a class-exclusive feature to the Ram 1500, though, so it's not available on the Ford F-150.[i]

Room for All Your Equipment

In addition to hauling your heavy machinery and equipment, your next pickup needs to be able to handle all the cargo your worksite requires. Fortunately, both the Ram 1500 and the Ford F-150 are up for the job. They have impressive payload capacities and expansive cargo beds for you to store bulky building materials and tools.

However, the 2019 Ram 1500 simplifies loading up your cargo area with an available multifunction tailgate. This unique feature has 60/40 split swing-away doors that open 88 degrees to make accessing your supplies easier-even with a trailer in tow. This design also allows for forklift loading to provide a helping hand around your worksite. Once again, though, this amenity is only found on the Ram 1500.

Infotainment System Comparison

Whether you're cruising around from worksite to worksite or taking an exciting weekend getaway out of state, you'll enjoy the ride with the infotainment systems found in the 2019 Ram 1500 and the Ford F-150. They both offer Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration, so you only need to plug your compatible device into the USB port for instant access to your customized playlists.

You may have better visibility in the Ram 1500, though, since it offers an expansive available 12-inch Uconnect® 12.0 with Navigation system. The display in the Ford F-150 measures only eight inches wide. View your entertainment and navigation system simultaneously in the Ram 1500 with split-screen capability. You may miss out on an important direction in the F-150 since this setting isn't available.
